You know how great inventions seem so simple once someone has invented it? Here is a perfect example: Most modern homes, or renovated older ones, end up with recessed can lighting all over the place. It's cheap, it does the job and it's inoffensive. But it also has no style and looks like you cheaped out on the decor, or couldn't make a decision. On top of that, while it's inexpensive to install, taking them out has always required an electrician, a plaster guy, and then repainting.
Now, if you've been following along, you'll know about saving money on your electric bill by replacing incandescent bulbs with CFLs and the new LED bulbs just hitting shelves. Today, I'm going to tell you how swapping your old lights for LED Christmas lights can save you money three ways.
I know it's early yet to be thinking about holiday decorations, but the whole inspiration for this blog today is a program that Home Depot is only running for a limited time. From now until 11/14, you can trade-in old-style Christmas lights and get $3 off a string of new, energy efficient, LED lights.

As the days shorten and temperatures drop, our utility bills are
going to begin to climb. A few small changes can reduce the amount
of energy you use. Here are some tips to help you decrease your
energy consumption and save money on your utility bills.
Put on a sweater and lower you thermostat. Set
your thermostat for between 65 - 68 degrees during the day and
lower it to 62 degrees while you sleep or are at work. If you have
a programmable thermostat, you can set it up now and not have to
worry about lowering and raising the temperature throughout the
Check the weather stripping around your doors and
windows. On a windy day, run your hand around the seams of
your windows and doors to see if you feel any drafts. If you do,
pick up weatherstripping at your local hardware store. You can find
self-adhesive weather stripping.
When I decide to de-clutter, t-shirts are always one of the items
that I donate the most. My husband's white undershirts, no
matter how I wash them, seem to get dingy in six months.
Instead of donating them all to our local Goodwill, I decided that
I would try to re-purpose them and make them into items I could use
around my house.

When we moved into our little house 2 1/2 years ago, I thought it was my dream house. We worked hard before we moved. We avoided paying rent by living in a camper for 9 months (even through part of a South Dakota winter!) in order to save up money and pay off bills so we would qualify for a mortgage.
We found the little house nestled on 10 acres of prairie land and declared it perfect, blindly ignoring that fact that it was a foreclosure and may have unforeseen problems. We got a great deal and we were in good shape to buy the house. We moved in in the middle of winter and looked forward to the spring and getting our home all set up.
The inside of the house was a mess. The doors and light fixtures were about 40 years old, maybe older. The paint was an extremely high gloss that we discovered was not at all easy to cover up, even with four coats of very good paint. The bathrooms were small and had cheap fixtures and the outlet sockets were so old that you could plug something in, only to watch it fall right back out.
